God is Still Speaking Ministry

 

 UCC At the Church of the Apostles, we believe that faith requires tenderness and courage, a kind of big love that is committed to changing people’s lives – in our church, but also in the world around us. 

        We’re not a perfect church, but we do try to be faithful. We work to make transformation possible by trusting in God’s grace. This is why our church is a place of vitality in worship, learning, and outreach ministries. 
        We believe in extravagant welcome – this is why we insist that God’s communion table is open, not closed. Our congregation extends hospitality as a sign of God’s love. Wherever you are on life’s journey, you are welcome in the United Church of Christ!


   What is the Stillspeaking Ministry?

God is still speaking.
        In 2004, it was concluded that there was a present and real need for genuine welcome, openness and acceptance for all within the church. The UCC responded to this call of extravagant welcome and radical hospitality with a new branding campaign to proclaim to the world that anyone could find a home in the United Church of Christ.


No matter who you are,

or where you are on life's journey,

you're welcome here.


        To date, more than 2,500 churches have chosen to formally participate in the God is still speaking, campaign. As that number continues to grow, the United Church of Christ continues to balance religious tradition with new ideas for religion that is relevant.


 

      The Still speaking Ministry continues to provide resources that enable all settings of the church to proclaim the good news of extravagant welcome. Together under one collective identity, we can enthusiastically support and proudly lift up that the UCC is a welcoming,

justice-minded Christian community. 
        At a time when religion is too often portrayed as narrow-minded and exclusive, many are raising their voices for an alternative vision where God is all-loving and inclusive:

  •  where a church welcomes and accepts everyone as they are
  •  where your mind is nourished as much as your soul
  •  where Jesus the healer meets Jesus the revolutionary
  •  where together we grow a just and peaceful world.

       One of the defining characteristics of the UCC is that we join in community by testimonials, not tests, of faith. Your beliefs, your understanding of God and Jesus and church are uniquely yours, as you seek and explore alongside others in community. By becoming a Stillspeaking Voice, you can pledge to share your faith journey with others.
